Primatte Keyerpad
Primatte Keyer

Supports Adobe After Effects, Avid, and Combustion.

Shooting footage against blue or green screens can be tricky. Uneven lighting and back-edge light contamination (spill) from the background often makes extracting a good matte an arduous task. Primatte Keyer deals effectively with these issues and other difficult-to-manage areas like semi-transparent glass and hair. The plug-in has a straightforward interface with simple controls which belie the complex maths under the hood. Mark Bennett, Mac User

  • Simple user interface for generating mattes.
  • Pulls keys after a few clicks of the mouse ? no sliders are necessary.
